Dustin Martin gets even more creepy.

Dustin Martin has earned his second nomination for The Fronwlow Medal in 2022 with a video that is even more creepy than the act which earned him his first nomination of the year.

The Frownlow Medal is awarded to the player whose off-field demeanour epitomises the values of the modern-day footballer and draws attention to the status of footballers as role models to young Australians. It covers Australia’s four major football codes; the National Rugby League (NRL), Australian Football League (AFL), the A-League (Football) and Rugby Union’s Super Rugby competition. NRL player Shaun Kenny-Dowall won the inaugural medal in 2015, while NRL star Jarryd Hayne is the most recent recipient.

The AFL hero appears in a video sent to the children of a man who is accused of assaulting their mother.

The Whatsapp video was allegedly sent on behalf of Victorian construction union head John Setka, who has been accused of domestic violence against his estranged wife, who is in crisis care. In the video, Martin offers to take the children out for lunch when he gets back from holidays, and the woman believes it was an attempt to pressure her children, who are Richmond Tigers fans.

Sources from within the union movement stated that Setka had no contact with Martin “and definitely didn’t ask him or ask anyone else to get a video made.”

Setka also denies the allegations of violence, while the domestic violence organisation said in writing that Setka posed an “imminent risk” to the family’s safety. The estranged wife stated:

“I’ve ceased contact between him and the children because of the effect his verbal and emotional abuse is having on the children,” she said. “Yet John Setka is still trying to contact me via WhatsApp and via Dustin Martin.”

Martin’s video proves that Australian children should be vaccinated against professional footballers, and is even more creepy than his first scandal of the year. On the eve of a final’s match between Richmond and Brisbane, an old video was released which showed Martin touching a woman’s bare breasts from behind before walking away laughing. The amateur video, which was taken in a club many years ago, earned Martin the nickname Titty Fiddler.

Dustin Martin has great touch.

Dustin Martin is regarded as one of the best AFL players of his generation, due largely to his great hands. He demonstrated his golden touch recently in a leaked video which has earned him yet another nomination for The Fronwlow Medal.

The Frownlow Medal is awarded to the player whose off-field demeanour epitomises the values of the modern-day footballer and draws attention to the status of footballers as role models to young Australians. It covers Australia’s four major football codes; the National Rugby League (NRL), Australian Football League (AFL), the A-League (Football) and Rugby Union’s Super Rugby competition. NRL player Shaun Kenny-Dowall won the inaugural medal in 2015, while NRL star Jarryd Hayne is the most recent recipient.

Martin appears in a leaked video reaching around from behind a woman and grabbing her breast as she sits on the lap of another man, before he is seen walking away laughing. Sources believe the video was taken as far back as 2015, but only surfaced in the last week or so.

The Richmond superstar is supposed to play in the all important elimination final against Brisbane in a matter of hours.

Dusty’s golden touch has landed him in trouble in the past.

He was suspended for 2 weeks in 2012 for missing a training session. In 2013, he was caught running a red light, and a year later was fined after driving suspended. His greatest off-field achievement came in 2015, when he used his delicate hands to hold chopsticks and threatened to drive them into a woman’s eye at a Japanese restaurant.

Will Dusty play against the Lions tonight?

Will he be punished for this incident, or will he prove yet again that if you’re good enough, you get away with anything?

Taylan May be a coward.

NRL player Taylan May might be a coward, or he may have acted in a cowardly manner when he earned his nomination for The Fronwlow Medal.

The Frownlow Medal is awarded to the player whose off-field demeanour epitomises the values of the modern-day footballer and draws attention to the status of footballers as role models to young Australians. It covers Australia’s four major football codes; the National Rugby League (NRL), Australian Football League (AFL), the A-League (Football) and Rugby Union’s Super Rugby competition. NRL player Shaun Kenny-Dowall won the inaugural medal in 2015, while NRL star Jarryd Hayne is the most recent recipient.

If May is a coward, it means he does this type of thing on a regular basis, and that it is an integral part of his character. However, if he is cowardly, it means he acted this way on one occasion. This is an important distinction to make because it has a huge bearing on whether or not he wins The Fronwlow Medal this year.

The Penrith winger was nominated early in 2022, and was recently found guilty of assault occasioning bodily harm. His actions were labelled “reprehensible” and “cowardly” and he was ordered him to pay $1000 in compensation to the victim and a $1000 fine. He did not have a conviction recorded against him.

May was not stood down by the Panthers following the incident or during the court proceedings, and it is not known whether he will miss any games during the finals series. He has been rested for the upcoming game, which is the last of the regular season.

May was found guilty of assaulting a young fan while celebrating the 2021 grand final win in Queensland. He reportedly reacted to a young fan who had filmed teammate Nathan Cleary. Cleary wanted the video deleted and during the argument May grabbed the man by the collar of his shirt and pulled him to the ground. The man struck his head on the floor during the altercation and suffered a sprained neck.

Somewhat ironically, May was in the presence of his brother Tyrone, who was kicked out of the NRL after being found guilty of distributing a sex tape without the woman’s permission, and earned his own Frownlow nomination. It seems private videos on mobile phones are still a touchy subject for the May brothers.

Taylan himself might want to clarify the wording of his actions, because the last thing a rugby league player can afford to be is a coward.
